FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- It's Friday the 13th, and if you're superstitious, you might be on the lookout for signs of bad luck.
Animal Care and Control said one of those signs includes black cats. That's why they have trouble adopting them out all year round.
During warmer months, the shelter has an influx of animals due to litters being born and a higher number of runaways. Animal Care and Control encourages people to adopt any animal that might be right for them, regardless of how it looks.
"Black cats are just like any other cats. They're loving animals and they deserve the best quality of life just like any other animal," said Holly Pasquinelli.
Pasquinelli said the shelter also has a hard time with black cats around Halloween.
All cats at the shelter are currently pick your price. They also run sales during the summer to make room for more animals.
